Does anyone have any suggetion for an affordable wedding venue/banquet/reception area in Orange County, CA? I booked a chinese restaurant and put down a deposit but it’s just not an intimate setting that I’m looking for. We have about 300-350 guest. I would still use the chinese restaurant for catering services but I need to find a venue that accepts outside catering. Please help me!

I’m not sure what affordable is to you or where in OC you are, but I had my reception at the Norman P Murray Center in Mission Viejo (these are pictures of the inside of my venue, our room decorated for our reception, and then 4 pictures I took of the outside of it when we were looking around at venues):
They have a room combo that can hold comfortably an estimated 320 people. They estimate it at 8 people per table with the tables being 60″ round tables. They provide tables and chairs and allow outside catering, dj, bar, etc. It might be worth a look if it’s not too far from where you want! Here’s a link to their information: http://cityofmissionviejo.org/assets/0/72/128/482/21a15ba7-48e5-47fe-9b0d-4984aa129906.pdf
Hope that helps! My wedding was small, so I don’t have any other research on larger places.

@dodgercpkl: Thank you so much for your suggestion. I really appreciate it!!! Mission Viejo is a little far from what I was considering. I was thinking about Westminster, Garden Grove, Anaheim, or Tustin,
